South West Institute of TAFE is the Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Institute located in the south west of the Australian state of Victoria.

It is the largest provider of vocational education and training in south-west Victoria.[citation needed]

South West Institute of TAFE's main campus is located in Warrnambool. The Institute also has campuses at Hamilton, Portland and Sherwood Park (East Warrnambool). The Institute offers training at a wide range of locations and industries throughout south-west Victoria.[1]


South West Institute of TAFE came into existence as a multi-campus institution in 1987, when the TAFE operations of the Hamilton and Portland Technical Schools were combined with the Warrnambool College of TAFE. Known then as the South West College of TAFE, the college was renamed in 1995 to become the South West Institute of TAFE.

From 2006 until 2013, the Institute managed Glenormiston College and assumed further regional responsibilities for training in agriculture, and farm and horse management. The Glenormiston campus was shut down due to government education funding cuts in 2013.
